View the days out leaflet for Discover Rutland - Oakham Heritage Trail

Oakham, the county town of Rutland, is a classic English market town, mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. It has a castle, market place, butter cross and stocks, a famous old school, all in close association with a magnificent parish church and arranged in a rectangular shape around which the town has grown.

Historic streets such as Northgate, Dean's Street, Catmos Street and Mill Street focus on the market place which is also flanked by the High Street. Several of these streets now contain a variety of shops which together with the busy markets held on Wednesday and Saturday attract visitors from a far. From Spring onwards Oakham is full of colour as local people prepare for the Britain in Bloom competition. Additionally, the renowned Oakham Festival takes place in June.
